THE CITIZEN
Devoted to the Interests of the Mountain People
JlliJII Civilization is going lIko a race horse these dayscovering
more ground every year ban it used to in a century A man has
to keep hustling all the time to keep upIf he wants his share of
the benefits of progress he must catch hold and hang on tight A
newspaper is the connecting link that holds the progressive men of
today in touch with the rest of the world jdiV W m
EVERY DAY COUNTS
Every thing that is worth while in this world has to be earned
and it is a mighty fine thing that the most valuable things are the
ones that cost the most This results in the fellows that will ap
preciate the best things getting them
One of the best things on earth is an education and it is one of
the hardest things to get For a good education can only be had by
keeping right after it for years It is hard to work steadily day
after day and year after year and yet that is the only way to accom
plish anything
In going forward it is much easier to keep going than it is to
stop and rest and then start again Once and a while every one has
to rest but the more seldom that is the faster and further he will
go It is tho same way with getting an education The more per
sistently a boy sticks to his work the sooner he will begin to profit
profitby
A single stop to rest costs a good deal The rest of the class
I gets ahead and it is harder to study when you get back to school
suet there has been an actual day lost Besides and most important
of all when a boy stops out a few days he loses his motion his mo
mentum and has to get started all over again A day out of school
pretty nearly loses a weeks time for the boy
It is mighty hard to stick to school these hot days when the
trees are so nice to lie under and apples taste so good But that is
the only way to do any good Of course a fellow will go some even
if he does stop once in a while but he will be a long way from doing
all he could and he will be cheating himself for the rest of his life
if ho does not work hard right along Every day of life counts and
every school day is an opportunity that should never be allowed to
pass for a boy can lay up riches for bis whole life in it Dont miss
n dayAnd
And parents who know better than the children what is good
for them should see to it that the youngsters dont miss Tho parent
who lets his boy loaf or stay from school to work is injuring that
child for lifo
1 WHAT IS MONEY WORTH
When a man in a high placo brays it makes quite a stir
Therefore it is not surprising that several people took notice of the
following bit of talk to a graduating class at Dartmouth from
Prof O II Palmer of Harvard
on lime had Illlln to ilo with rlfnuiiinirt Now you are rntlrd
ii I > ou to rnrn ymir own llTlnjr From thf > lime on honor money
KHtlntr money mud power Riches sire the lacer of service to the
world
It would not be surprising to hear talk like this from some
people There are always uud probably always be people who
can never see beyond the shine of the silver dollar and who never
ask either where the money came from or where it is going
There are some people so low that they measure all success by the
dollar mark and count the rich thief happier than the honest poor
man
But that such a view should be expressed by such a man has
surprised the world Prof Palmer knows about Harry Thawwith
lots of money and about the paled faced weak lived children of the
city millionaires who squandered in dissipation the money their fath
ers earned or stole he knows of the wealthy scoundrels who are living
in luxury on money stolen a few pennies at a time from the poor of
the laud thru trust extortions and corporation robbery he knows of
the rich brokers who cheat the poor who trust them of the lawyers
who betray the trusts of widows and orphans of the saloon keepers
who livo richly on the proceeds of food and clothing which the
wives and children of drunkards are forced to do without Prof
Palmer knows all these things and yet he says honor money
And Dr Palmer knows of other things too He knows of the
work done for suffering humanity by poverty stricken country doc
tors of the self sacrificing lives of ministers of the Gospel some of
them giving their health and happiness for humanity in foreign
lands he knows of the work done by men like Burbank Wright
Roosevelt Bryan Edison Stevenson and hundreds of others who
never sought toward in money but lived and died with little
wealth yet won undying fame he knows of the records of Grant
and Lincoln and Washington and Lee and Sheridan and Farragut
and Dewey ho knows of the sermons of Talmadge lind Chapman
and Finney and a hundred thousand others and finally he knows
of Him who had not where to lay His headand yet he says honor
money It may be that the time will come when Prof Palmers
precept will be accepted and the world will honor money but if
ever that time comes and the world has no honor for unselfish
service for heroism or patriotism or statesmanship invention or
the relieving of Buffering or the preaching of truth if that time
ever comes wo may all pray that Prof Palmer may be left alone
with the rich men he would honor so There could be no worse
punishment for him
peared and when the Democrats
went out ot office in 1907 according
to the Republican they left the trea
sury practically empty
The Republican follows this argu
ment with an itemized statement
from official sources of all expendi
tures during tho Taylor administra
tion This statement Is lengthy and
Includes reference to tho statutory
authority for each item The largest
slnglo entry more than onethird of
the total amount is 33235551 for
school claims
Mr Beckham Is challenged to show
from these figures where extrava 11
gance or dishonesty existed in the Re
I publican conduct of affairs as charg
ed by inference in his paper
QUESTIONS FOR BECKHAM
Further the Horrodsburs editor chal
lenges Mr Beckham to loll why it
cost him nearly a million dollars more
annually to administer the State than 11
It cost his predecessors He Invites
him to dispute the charge that the
Democrat left Indebtedness amount
I ing to 000000 when they went out
of office In 1907 He asks him to In
from the public about how much of
the States money was spent In gett
ing possession ot the offices to which
Taylor and his colleagues had been
electedReferring
Referring to a quotation In MrI
Beckhams paper from a contemporary
to the effect that Gov Willson bas I
e
spent 160000 for soldiers to suppress
the night riders and that there were
other leaks in the Treasury he re
quests Mr Beckbam to say whether
he believes Gov Willson was wrong
in using tho State mlllta for this pur
pose and to specify Just what are
the other leaks mentioned in the
quotation Louisville Herald

THE FACTS TOLD
IparrelesTKentucky
Harrodsburg ICyThe Kentucky
Republican in Its current issue lIub1
Itches a lengthy editorial reply to
tho criticism of the financial policy
of the present Republican administra
tion and its predecessors under
Bradley and Taylor made by former
Gov Beckham editor of the Ken
tucky State Journal
The controversy began by tho pub
lication In tho Republican of an arti
cle approving tho conduct of affairs
under Gov Willson and referring par
tlcularly to tho economy and wisdom
that had been practiced In tho ex
penditure of the public revenues Mr
Beckham II a later issue of his par
I per took occasion to point out what
he alleged to be flaws In the Repub
licans argument and reverted to
ancient history In order to demon
strate to his own satisfaction that
the virtue of economy lay wholly
with the Democrats
BECKHAMS ADROIT EVASION
Mr Beckham accepted tho state
ment of the Harrodsburg editor In
which figures were quoted from the
report of Auditor Stone who held
I
office under Bradley to show that tho
end of his regime he left in the
I
treasury to pay the bonded indebt
ness of the State the balance amount
Ing to 1OCO4250S but to the
charge made by the Republican two
months later the Democratic auditor
found a net Indebtedness of 1700000
and that this Indicated extraordinary
extravagance In a brief space of
ttiiio on the part of the new Beck
ham administration ho replied with
the counter charge that Auditor
Stone turned over the balance from
his administration not to the De
mocratic treasurer hut to the Re
publican official who served during
the few weeks of tho Illfated Taylor
regime
The Inference while not directly
drawn by Mr Beckham appears to
be that tho leakage occurred In tills
brief Interval between Bradley and
himself
THE REPUBLICANS ANSWER
In order to meet this adroit shift
ing of responsibility the Harrods
burg editor alleging that he omitted
reference to tho Taylor regime In
his original article for tho purpose
of drawing out Mr Beckham shows
that Auditor Colter who was Gov
Bcckhama colleague In a report to
the Legislature dated December 1
1901 was able to discover only one
Item for criticism In tIle accounts of
tho Taylor administration that being
the expenditure of 2992613 for the
maintenance of the State milita at
Frankfort during tho critical period
In which tho conflict for office was
proceeding This expenditure Mr
Colter referred to as a misappropria
tionThe
The Republican editor argues that
since Auditor Colter was naturally
prejudiced against the Taylor regime
the fact that his critical scrutiny
could find no other item for condem
nation than this Is high tribute to
the honesty with which affairs were
conducted In the three troubled
months of Republican rule
DEMOCRATIC EXTRAVAGANCE
Quoting from Colters report again
the Harrodsburg man shows that on
the formers own admission 364771
37 was turned over by W R Day
Treasurer under Taylor to S W Ha
ger Treas under Beckham In spite
of the fact that the Beckham ad
ministration collected 1323000 from
the Federal Government and mulcted
the people for 1000000 more In taxes
every year than they had ever been
required to pay before within two
